I'd say install something else, Kali Linux does not like you. It takes some experience with Linux to make friends with Kali.

Some experienced Linuxers would hope gParted is on the medium you booted.

From there, make the recommended partition types in advance of the install.
Reboot after apply and hope your second visit is better sailing.

Are you familiar with partitioning?
